Ovetto, Ovettone or Bubbleback, this is how one of the first automatic models produced by Rolex is universally known. Introduced to the market in 1933, it is an extraordinary automatic wristwatch for that time and the present 3134 is gorgeous and charming specimen of this historically important model. The case is composed of three parts with curved lugs, inclined bezel, screwed down case back and is very well looking for quality and conservation. The dial has a stunning pink color with a principle of patina, luminous Arabic and squared numerals, outer minutes track and sweep centered seconds. The watch is also equipped with a resistant Oyster riveted bracelet.
